How Do Heat Pumps Work?

September 29, 2022 | Blog

Although Daphne doesn’t get much cold weather, an intense cold front can be miserable if you don’t have efficient heating options! A heat pump is a high-efficiency HVAC system that provides warm and cool air for your home. This dual-purpose system is a reliable way to heat and cool your home year-round.

Baldwin Heating & Cooling is proud to offer top-tier heat pump installations! Our team of professional technicians is equipped with the knowledge and tools to efficiently get the job done. Read ahead to learn more about heat pumps and why they’re a popular HVAC option!

What Is A Heat Pump?

A standard furnace generates warm air using electrical currents and heating coils. Heat pumps use a different process, essentially moving hot air from one place to another. In the winter, the system extracts heat from the outside and transfers it into your home. During the summer, the system does the opposite, absorbing warm indoor air and transporting it outdoors.

The average heat pump reaches a service life of about 15 years. But with the proper care and maintenance, it can last much longer! This system is commonly used in mild climates where temperatures do not drop below freezing. However, when temperatures drop too low, the system can be paired with a furnace for the same cost-effective end results!

Benefits Of A Heat Pump Installation

Compared to a gas-powered or standard AC unit, a heat pump has a few advantages that make it stand out. These multifunctional systems are popular among homeowners for many reasons.

A few benefits of a heat pump system are:

  • Lower monthly utility bills
  • High energy efficiency
  • Better humidity control
  • Offers heating AND cooling
  • Only requires one unit
  • Takes up less space
  • Maintains good indoor air quality
  • Reduces carbon footprint

This heating and cooling system is a beneficial investment for many homeowners. There are different kinds of heat pumps to choose from, such as air-to-air, water or ground source systems. A technician can help determine which type is the best fit for your home before performing a professional heater installation.

How Do Heat Pumps Conserve Energy?

A heat pump uses less energy to warm and cool your home. Since the system does not generate heat but moves it from one area to another, it is deemed more energy efficient. Many units have earned the ENERGY STAR label, the nationwide government symbol for energy efficiency.

When it comes to your heater, energy conservation can lead to big savings! An energy-efficient system can significantly lower your monthly energy bill. It also prolongs your unit’s lifespan, helping prevent wear and tear and expensive repairs. If you’re replacing a central AC system, a heat pump can be paired with existing ductwork or function as a ductless unit.

Excellent install of a generator by Jake & Ryan. They went over and above, working late waiting for the utility inspector to come out for final inspection. Couldn’t be happier…these guys are the best.
